THE COKER GROUP DONATES TREADMILL FOR USE IN ACUTE INPATIENT REHAB

The Coker Group recently donated close to $3,600 for a LiteGait treadmill that will be used in the Acute Inpatient Rehab Unit at Murray-Calloway County Hospital. The LiteGait treadmill is a full body weight support system that enables treatment of patients with impairment balance, and more specifically for stroke patients.  The system eliminates the possibility of a patient fall, and paired with the treadmill, allows the therapist to work on targeted strategies. This treatment often allows faster progression and improved outcomes in patient function and mobility.

“This is a great piece of equipment that can help our patients significantly with balance. This allows me, as the therapist, more hands on with the patient to focus on gait mechanics, weight shifting, and balance strategies,” said Amy Johnson, PTA.
